What Makes the Bible So Special?

The Bible is different from all other books in history? What makes it so unique? Why has it been so influential? Sean briefly tackles these questions.

Do The Intricacies Of This World Point To A Designer? (Video) | Cold Case Christianity

J. Warner Wallace, author of God's Crime Scene, was interviewed by Bobby Conway (The One Minute Apologist) and discussed the appearance of fine-tuning in the universe. Can this fine-tuning be explained from physical necessity, random chance or any other "natural" explanation, or is a Divine Designer the most reasonable inference? (For more information related to Bobby's great ministry, visit: To see more training videos with J. Warner Wallace, visit the YouTube playlist.

Psalm 1:2: Do You Delight in Bible Reading?

The word of God is not merely medicine for our sickly souls. To the born-again heart, it is food for our enjoyment and drink for our soul’s delight.

The Most Valuable Aim of Apologetics

Exodus 3 narrates the well-known account of God’s revealing Himself to Moses in the burning bush and commissioning him to tell Pharaoh to release the Israelites from slavery in Egypt. But that was only part of Moses’ mission. The other task to which the Lord called Moses was to address the Israelites. He was to command the Israelites in the name of God to engage in the largest strike in history. In absolute defiance of the power and authority of Pharaoh, they were to leave Egypt and go out to the desert to worship God at His mountain. And, of course, these events ended in the exodus.

Why Christian Apologetics Is Not A Discipline

Years ago at an apologetics conference I heard Winfried Corduan say, “Apologetics is not a discipline, it’s a practice.” This was something I had been saying for a while, so it was refreshing to hear him say it. It was similar to what Gary Habermas had told me a few years before. I asked him if he could recommend a school or program for getting a Ph.D. to do apologetics. He said to get a Ph.D. in a discipline, like history, and then do apologetics from that field. This made sense. However, it seems that many apologists today want to just “do apologetics” without being a specialist in a field. Being an expert just in apologetics is to not be an expert at anything.

One walked away from his faith and became a secular humanist. The other has become one of the top apologists and defenders of the Christian faith.

How a Piece of Fish Provides Evidence for the Resurrection - A Clear Lens

“As they were talking about these things, Jesus himself stood among them, and said to them, ‘Peace to you!’ But they were startled and frightened and thought they saw a spirit. And he said to them, ‘Why are you troubled, and why do doubts arise in your hearts? See my hands and my feet, that it is I myself. Touch me, and see. For a spirit does not have flesh and bones as you see that I have.’ And when he had said this, he showed them his hands and his feet. And while they still disbelieved for joy and were marveling, he said to them, ‘Have you anything here to eat?’ They gave him a piece of broiled fish, and he took it and ate before them.”

Should We Choose Jesus over the Bible?

The problem with that understanding is that it misses the point of what Jesus was actually arguing. The context of the passage is Jesus’ miracles on the Sabbath. The whole point of the passage is that Jesus is the Lord of the Sabbath; He’s what the Sabbath was pointing to. Jesus’ opponents were mishandling God’s Word and looking for eternal life by keeping a form of Sabbath laws. Jesus was showing that their problem was not their devotion to God’s Word—the problem was their heart. In other words, Jesus wouldn’t say, “Lessen your devotion to searching the Scriptures,” but, “Look for Me as you search the Scriptures,” because the Scriptures are a witness to Christ in the same way that the Father is a witness to Christ (v. 37). Again, the problem was not that they didn’t believe in the Father; the problem was their hearts: “You do not have his word abiding in you, for you do not believe the one whom he has sent” (v. 38), and, “But I know that you do not have the love of God within you” (v. 42).

A lot of people talk to God but never hear from God. For them, prayer is a monologue. But you can’t have a relationship through a monologue. What if I had married my wife and talked to her, but she never talked to me? That’s not a relationship. You’ve got to have a conversation. Just as important as talking to God in prayer is listening to God and letting him talk to you. How does that happen? First, you’ve got to want it more than anything else.

Can Reason Lead Us To A Relationship With God?

“As it applies to Christianity,” I persisted, “some of what we know about God can be inferred from observations. This is referred to as ‘general revelation.’ Consider what we see of the universe: it is spatially and temporally immense, beyond our ability to understand and grasp; it is well-ordered and predictable, with set laws such as logic and math, physics and chemistry, all operating flawlessly, consistently and seamlessly. It contains examples of breath-taking beauty, such as the inherent beauty of music and nature, and heart-pounding emotion, such as the joy of first love or the miracle of birth. But it is also quite deadly, or at the very least quite inhospitable to humans. Despite its immense size, it appears that we can live only in a sliver of air on a remote planet, and even there, most of the planet is exceedingly dangerous to us. You see, my ability to reason can lead me to some generalities: God must be immensely powerful and intelligent; he must be artistic and love order. He must be capable of great love. But is he …  harsh ? Uncaring? Why is this creation so dangerous? And, most importantly, what comes next? Reason cannot lead us to any answers here.

Prophecies of Jesus: Old Testament Prophets and the Messiah

The Old Testament writings, which were canonized as the inspired word of God, contain many predictions of future events. The central figure of these predictions is the Messiah, the Savior. The Jews have expected the Messiah to this day. However, those closest to Jesus alleged that they had found him; they embraced the belief that Jesus was that Messiah and eventually became known as the earliest Christians. The prophecies of the Messiah they saw to be prophecies of Jesus . This they did in part because Jesus fulfilled all of the prophecies of the Messiah noted by the Old Testament prophets.

Why the New Pew Report Ought to Energize Us As Christian Case Makers | Cold Case Christianity

Surprising: The Least Educated Are More Likely to Be Atheists The media sometimes portrays atheists as the thoughtful, intelligent and informed people of America. Atheists groups try to reinforce this depiction. David Silverman, the president of American Atheists, responded to the Pew report by claiming, “More people (atheists) know the facts, and more people realize they are not alone.” But the statistics show that most atheists are not highly educated. According to the Pew survey, the largest group of atheists (57%) have less than a bachelor’s degree (26% have a high school diploma or less). Only 26% have completed a four year degree program and only 16% have a post-graduate degree. Make no mistake about it, Christian statistics are similarly poor, but here’s my point: many Christians tend to shrink from engaging their openly non-believing friends because they feel intellectually intimidated. But the largest group of atheists are just like the largest group of Christians – neither majority possesses a graduate degree. We are far more alike than we are different in this regard.

Christian case maker warns Christians to trust the evidence, not their feelings

If you want to read another deconversion story that shows how a focus on feelings and experiences leads to atheism, check out the story of Dan Barker . I know so many people who were raised in the church by pastors who were anxious to “protect” Christian truth claims from  being proved or disproved by evidence. They thought that their approach was more pious – how dare we let science and history stand in judgment over the Bible? When I look at Dan Barker and Bart Campolo, I can see where that fideism ended up. Piety is a cheap way of gaining respect without having done any work. We need to demand better from pastors. They ought to be able to show their work. They ought to be able to demonstrate what reasoning and evidence led them to their convictions. Not their feelings and experiences, but actual reasoning and evidence.

Preaching Your People Toward Mission

One of the most important things a local church can do is exegete its immediate community and then the wider culture of its city in order to identify what idols dominate there. Then, your preaching can address these idols head-on. For one thing, the people of your church will need this, as these idols will be their greatest temptations away from full-hearted worship of God too. But explicating how the gospel subverts and conquers specific idolatries in your context can (a) help lost people present in the room see the beauty and lordship of the one true God, (b) help Christians in the room repent of their propensities toward syncretism, and/or (c) train the Christians in the room to identify and address the idolatry they seen around them while on the mission of their everyday lives.

Is Mark's Gospel an Early Memoir of the Apostle Peter? | Cold Case Christianity

Now, it can be argued that Papias’ description of Mark’s collaboration with Peter in Rome is the earliest description available to us. In fact, skeptics have tried to argue that later Church sources are simply parroting Papias when they connect Mark to Peter. But there is no evidence to suggest that Papias is the sole source of information related to Peter and Mark, particularly when considering the slight variations in the subsequent attributions (such as Clement’s version). The subtle differences suggest that the claims came from different original sources. In addition, Justin Martyr’s tangential reference to the ‘sons of thunder’ strengthens the support for Peter’s involvement coming from a source other than Papias (who never makes this connection). In essence, a claim of dependency on Papias lacks specific evidence, and even if this were the case, there is no reason to doubt the accuracy of Papias’ original claim in the first place. The consistent record of history identifies Mark’s Gospel as a memoir of Peter’s life with Jesus.

Why Not to Check Your Phone in the Morning

Back in April we surveyed readers of desiringGod.org. 8,000 of you responded — thank you for the amazing response. Of those total responses, over 50% of those who have a smartphone admit to checking their phones within minutes of waking up in a typical morning. Among readers 18–29, that number is over 60%. Most of us know a pattern like this (checking email, texts, and social media on our phones immediately in the morning) is not healthy, but we do it anyway. Pastor John, why do you think grabbing for our phones in the morning is a default reaction for many Christians? And is there a better way forward?

Structural insights into the voltage and phospholipid activation of the mammalian TPC1 channel

Two-pore channels (TPCs) are organellar voltage-dependent ion channels that are widely expressed in both animals and plants. In mammals, TPC1 and TPC2 regulate the physiological functions of the endolysosomal system. Here, Youxing Jiang and colleagues report the structure of mouse TPC1, a sodium ion (Na + )-selective channel, in both its apo closed state and phospholipid-bound open state by cryo-electron microscopy. Along with functional studies, these data underlie the basis for the difference in selectivity and gating of mammalian TPCs compared to their plant homologues. They also provide information on the mechanisms of activation and regulation by lipid binding.

The Future is Simpler, but Not Simple Church - Allen White's Blog

As Rick Rusaw asks, “What if we gave as much attention to scattering as we give to gathering?” The seeker service is fading. The missional movement gets the church part way there, but lacks building relationships with those who are served. Incarnational is next. What is incarnational? Jesus’ words in Matthew 22:37-40 — “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself. All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” Jesus gave his followers only two things to do: Love God and Love Neighbors. An M.Div. is not necessary for either of those. (I have an M.Div.)
